Josh Jung is the closest position player that will have an impact at the MLB level for the Rangers next year.  Jung sustained an injury in Spring Training and it slowed his development until he was reinstated to the AA lineup in June.  In 122 career MILB games, Jung has compiled a .322 AVG, 21 HR, 89 RBI, and a .394 OBP.  Jung should be the starting 3B for the Rangers on Opening Day in 2022.
